Exhibition: “Meret Oppenheim – Retrospektive” at Gropius-Bau

Globe-M: “Bourgeoisie, Swing and Molotov Cocktails” exhibition at C/O Berlin – article

A new C/O Berlin exhibition which is starting tomorrow – Globe-M article: Amerika in Berlin. The background: C/O Berlin is one of the most high-profile photography exhibition galleries in Berlin. They’re a non-profit foundation and were established in 2000; for many photography fans they have an almost iconic status. For the last 13 years C/O Berlin was based in the old Postfuhramt on Oranienburger Straße in Mitte, a truly spectacular historical building.

Globe-M: “Nostalgia”, early Russian colour photography at Gestalten gallery – article

Gestalten gallery (www.gestalten.com/space) in Berlin-Mitte is currently showing “Nostalgia”, a small exhibition of very early colour photographs by Russian photographer Michailowitch Prokudin-Gorski. In 1906 he travelled across Russia to systematically document the different regions, peoples and landscapes of Tsarist Russia; I love photography (especially early photography and travel photography) so I decided to make this my next globe-M article…..! Sophie-Gips-Höfe near Hacke’scher Markt. Free entry!

And here is the globe-M article about the exhibition: Farbenfrohes Zarenreich.
